Carson City Sheriff’s Office hosting Citizen’s Academy

Carson City residents can have the opportunity to learn about the Sheriff’s Office and detention center with the Citizen’s Academy.

The Citizen’s Academy is an 11-week course that explains what the Sheriff’s Office does, how they do it and why. Attendees will get a chance to talk with Sheriff Ken Furlong and Undersheriff Steve Albertsen, tour the detention center and 911 Dispatch Center, as well as learn about each department in the office.

The academy will run every Wednesday night from 6-9 p.m., from July 13 to Sept. 21 in the Ormsby Room at the Sheriff’s Office.

This is open to anyone over 18 years old, with a preference given to Carson City residents, local merchants and their employees and senior citizens. The class is free but due to the limited number of openings, not all applicants will be able to attend.

The deadline for applications is Friday, July 8 at 5 p.m. To request an application or receive more information, contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 911 E. Musser Street or call Ken Smith at 775-887-2020 ext. 41932, at 775-283-7810 or via email at
